it about even. i saw a cbs poll that had him winning 50 to 30 with undecided voters. i don't try to spend a lot of time looking at polls with 25 days out, but i was very, very proud of what he did and how he comported himself on the stage last night. to communicate directly to the american people about what it is that he and president obama want to do, and quite frankly, drawing a very stark contrast with what ryan and romney would do. >> some people have called your father disrespectful by the way he treated paul ryan last night, that he was like sort of an older bully bashing a little guy around. what did you think? your dad's always been a fairly live wire when it comes to public speaking. i found him thoroughly entertaining, i have to say. do you think he overstepped the mark occasionally? does he feel that? >> not at all. i didn't feel that way at all. look, you grew up following and covering parliamentary system. this was mild from the things relative to what you've covered. >> that is true. >> in great britain. and so look, my dad says what he means, means what he says. he did it w

. >> stephanie: we were saying. i haven't looked at all of the polls, but jim what is the cbs one -- 50-31 biden. and the cbs poll shows that ryan won. >> really? >> stephanie: i did catch a little morning joe on the way out. i get it john you deal with these people all the time. we're very very excited about paul ryan's big win. >> and in related news the cubs just won the pennant. >> fox news says opinions differ. but even the "new york post"s that biden just owned it. paul ryan didn't embarrass himself. i don't think he beat paul ryan so much as he helped the president a lot. >> stephanie: can you imagine paul ryan as president. he looked about 12. >> i called child protection services when i saw an old man beating up an and little boy. >> you know what hurts ryan is he always buys his suits too big. >> you may ask yourself how do these numbers add up. >> stephanie: joe biden is having a scotch right now. while paul ryan's mom is putting his debate participation certificate on the refrigerator. >> i thought ryan did okay. >> stephanie: yeah. >> but biden took the na
thing is the cbs poll shows biden winning by a wide margin. i think it was something like 50-33 or something like that. i think the cnn poll's a little weird here. there's something funny about that. >> i think the cbs poll is. >> i'm hearing the cbs poll. i'm not sure if people even watched the debate that were polled in the cbs poll. >> it was undecided debate watchers supposedly. so the interesting thing is, you know, i think biden did what he had to do, which is to get the ticket back on target. >> yeah. >> why don't we watch some clips. >> really? you don't want to give an opinion? okay. the night began on the -- >> mika, what's wrong, mika? you're being so rude. i think -- what do you think? >> yes. i think biden just completely trounced him. ate him for dinner and then spit him out on the table like little shrivelled piece of something. i don't know what. i mean, seriously. >> i didn't see that. >> really? okay. well, that's funny because you had very clear opinions after the last debate. but you have very unclear opinions after this one. and i think it might be becaus
candidates are expected to discuss in their debate tuesday. danielle nottingham, cbs news the white house. >> president obama will spent the next few days in williamsburg, virginia, preparing for next week's debate. romney plans to campaign in ohio saturday. >>> you saw us at the top of the show, everybody down at nats park saying it's freezing. topper shutt in the weather center with a first look. we do have freeze warnings tonight. >> we also have frost advisories even downtown. so the coldest night of the season, dress in layers and hat and gloves not over the top. let's start with the game forecast. winds will subside somewhat, still become breezy, but temperatures upper 40s to mid- 50s, winds out of the north at 12. so they've been gusting to 20 and 30 miles per hour. at least they'll subside somewhat as we go through the game. we got frost advisories for the district, for prince george's county, fairfax county, freeze warnings montgomery county north and west, loudoun county and prince william county north and west. if you have plants you want to save, bring them in or cover them. t
. we get all of the internal back and forth and explanation. i will say this is what is difference. cbs on the ground originally said the story didn't add up cnn got the journal and lambasted by the secretary of state's staffer for putting it forward and said it was news worthy and not personal. they took on every news agency including us on this story and now all guns including the state department pointed in the administration. >> gretchen: because the way the state department answered this question yesterday: do you agree with the white house on the conclusion that the attack was sparked by the video instead of a planned terrorist attack and the state department said you would have to ask others. that was not our conclusion. >> steve: they have got themselves a scandal with a month before the election . and we told you yesterday about a actress that appeared. she played dee in clueless. it turns out, she who once upon a time supported barack obama and she now supports mitt romney. >> brian: she had death slams. >> steve: who wound up contacting paul ryan. and then later there was thi
a snap poll in terms of results from tonight's debate. cbs news did a flash poll of uncommitted voters on who they think won tonight's debate. 19% of those voters said the debate was a tie. 31% say that paul ryan won. 50% say that vice president biden won. we're going to be joined in a moment -- we've talked to a couple of people who are functioning as surrogates for the obama campaign tonight. we're going to be speaking with a supporter of ryan and romney in just a moment, congresswoman marsha blackburn in a moment. while we get her to a microphone, i want to get response from you guys to that poll. that comports my feelings about who won the debate. steve, as a republican, does that feel like a reasonable response? >> undecided voters, i certainly think it's in the realm of possibility. you have to look at where all the flash polls are. the thing to remember, just like last week, those undecided voters, they will break to the winner side over the next 48 hours. that lead will spread. if, in fact, there's a 20-point lead off of the flash polls on average with 20% undecided by the time
. as for undecided voters, the cnn poll was of all viewers, but cbs did a poll specifically of undecided voters who were watching the debate, and joe biden won overwhelmingly, 53% to 35% something in that range. those are the voters that people are looking for right now. they clearly said joe biden was the winner. >> one of our polls cnn/orc poll, they said who was more likable. and it was paul ryan who won by a decent margin. almost 10% margin there. also, who performed better at the debate? that looked like a tie from our perspective. >> that was a poll of all the viewers. it was as you indicated earlier slighted weighted towards republicans. >> this was debate watchers. >> right. but the cbs poll was debate watchers who were undecided going in. and they gave the clear victory. >> let's talk a little bit about paul ryan on tax cuts. i want to play a little bit from the debate. >> sure. >>> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch o
and independents. >> i will say this, you had a "cbs poll" right after the debate of undecided voters, people not made up their mind which is very small, small portion. electorate. by 50-32% margin, those voters believed joe biden won the debate. that is something very key. >> except there were four or five other snap polls. >> not of undecided voters. >> undecided voters cnn. >> cnn had totality of voters. >> the problem gets to what we're talking about what biden's mission was last night. if you're incumbent party and you're still worried about the base with three weeks to go before the general election you're in really tough shape. >> i'm not sure he was worried about the base. >> you just said that was the whole show last night. >> no. no. energizing the base. wasn't getting the base to exactly support, wasn't worried about the base not dropping off and coming out to vote. the base was dispirited because president obama, i thought president obama did not come out and defend in full throated way what the debase wanted to defend you concluding myself. doesn't mean the base is staying home o
and bin laden is no more. >> sean: now, cbs news'ular laura logan calls the obama administration on its lies on al qaeda. we will tell you what the middle-east reporter really says is going on and bob woodward and another endorsement, why is stacey dash on the receiving end of a backlash -- she is supporting mitt romney. look at the horrible double look at the horrible double standard, racist tweets and those little things still get you. for you, life's about her. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for ily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess with cialis. side effects may
-point reversal from a week ago. >>> and according to a "new york times"/cbs poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. last month the president was up one point in that state. in virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. he's now up 51%-46%. and in wisconsin, the candidates are within the margin of error after the president lost a point from last month and mitt romney gained two. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the p
four weeks. and this round from cbs quinnipiac and the "new york times" shows the president may be leading where it counts most, issues important to the middle class. joining me now is peter brown. thanks for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> voters are were asked who cares more about the needs of people like you and the president leads in all three states, colorado, virginia, and wisconsin. the preference for the president is small in colorado, with you still president. are romney's recent beefed up efforts as we see him try to be more folksy, if you will, to woo the middle qulas, is that not working? >> it seems to be working a little bit. throughout the campaign, the president has scored much better on person about al qualities than has mr. romney. the pattern since mr. romney won the nomination has been he was able to compete on the issue of the economy, but on a host of other issues and a host of personal characteristics, the president was ahead. and that has helped him stay ahead in the horse race polls. what you've seen since the first debate obviously is in some plac places
the cbs but not by a huge margin and then the cnn poll among all voters, paul ryan had the advantage. it was almost a split decision, not only in that focus group but also the insta-polls. democrats loved it, republicans didn't. people are split and i think that's your verdict. >> speaking of focus groups, we get the sense that the obama campaign is going to be effective? >> i think joe biden gave them a road map. abortion was a hit on romney and ryan. it was almost like obama was a little too cold the first debate. joe biden was was hot and goldi might come. >> he has to find goldilocks. stick around because this was not the feistiest debate of the night. i'll give you nasty, go to arizona. >>> who was the last chief justice nominated to the supreme court by a democrat? it's chief justice fred vincent or as he is known here on campus dead fred. vinson was appointed to the high court by president harry truman is an iconic college alum. they take his portrait to every home football game and other big events on campus. dead fred was there for the first thrill in the ville back in 2000
by the democrats if in fact biden performed well last night there was a cbs poll done and half of them said that biden won as opposed to a quarter or third said that ryan won. a new poll just got released just as i was heading over here, a reuter's poll, and that showed that biden won. two of the three polls that have been released show that voters gave biden the edge. it also, you know, really pokes a hole in this myth of ryan as somebody who, you know, says what he means when he's talking about the facts because he really hedged in a lot of places. he didn't offer clear distinctions with the president on their foreign policy. in numerous cases he dodged a question as the campaign has repeatedly on what kind of taxes they would support. so there's a lot of places where -- and obviously the thing that we were talking about, the stimulus letter. it pokes a hole that ryan is a policy purist. >> now, talking about where he pauses, it was revealing that he had a long pause when he was asked about abortion rights under the romney/ryan administration. watch this. >> if the romney/ryan ticket is e
. how can that be? here's david axelrod on cbs's "face the nation." are you saying that governor romney died or was dishonest? >> dishonest, absolutely. when he said he never proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts, that was dishonest. >> when senator obama said in 2008, i'm going to cut the deficit in half, close gitmo, people said that was unrealistic, but didn't say he wasn't telling the truth. there's a difference, isn't there? >> no. closing gitmo involved an act of congress, and he wasn't able to get congress to agree with him on that question. this is basic math. >> greta: joining us our political panel, abc news senior washington editor rick klein, casey huntington, and byron york. rick, first you. i thought it was executive order to close gitmo, just needed congress to place the people. am i right? >> they realized it was going to be harder than they wanted. the distinction he's making is in terms of campaign pledges versus actions that you can possibly have congress do later. it's a stretch obviously. one man's lie and dishonesty. >> greta: it's name-calling. >> you've seen a shift f
it on cbs "early today." >> right now the romney campaign is running away from some of their positions like unwanted stepchildren, but we're going to hold them to them and explain to the country exactly what the differences are here because the choice is very stark. >> what do you make of that? >> this is always -- it's interesting, this has always been their position. back in the spring i had a conversation with david plouffe where he said, you know, this choice between flip-flopper and hard right conservative is a false choice. >> have they meat up their mind yet? >> he said we're going to do both. when he tries to flip and flop we'll call him coreless but try to pin him back -- >> what's better -- >> extremism. >> that's what i said. everybody thinks politicians are politicians, and that they flip. they all believe that. >> that's their point. their point is you can say both. look, he's lying to you here. he's being coreless, being phony, but this is what he actually believes. it's exactly what axelrod is saying. the phrase someone used in the campaign back in the spring is we need to fr
over the last few days, in our polling, in ohio, florida, and virginia, in the cbs/"new york times" polling, it feels like everything has moved to what i would call preconvention, right, before there was a democratic bounce, and before there was any sort of romney bounce, where this is a close race, but when you look in the battleground states there seems to be still a small advantage for the president. look at ohio. i think the most important number of the polls we had today was this early voting result that we found where one in five ohioans have already voted and the president's winning 2-1 among those folks that have already voted. that's a big organizational advantage. he's banking some vote. that's a big deal, and that's an important result to look at. i also think there's some other trend here that i want to keep an eye on which is it seems romney got a bigger bounce in the national polls than we're seeing in some of these states and could it be that there was more room for him to grow in the non-battleground states than there was in the battleground states where there's bee
, the swing voters. >> let me give you some of the immediate reaction from people who watched the debate. cbs news asked the question after the debate who won. 50% said joe biden 31% said paul ryan. cnn had a poll as well. who won? paul ryan 48%, joe biden 44%. cnn parentally republicans were oversampled more than usual in a cnn poll. so that may be why that number's high up. and i'm going to give david and jonathan a chance to catch their breath and get your analysis. i've been flying all morning long and i'm not into man fights. this notion, the headline will be can president obama duplicate, replicate, pick up where biden left off, that is what matters here. >> i think that will be the headline starting tomorrow. we done the have to wait till tuesday. >> right. >> the fact that there's no unanimity of agreement like last week. last week everybody knew what happened, democrats, republicans alike agree, it had not been president obama's best night. last night both sides are defending their guy and i think it was probably close to being a quote, unquote, tie. but it doesn't really matter if i
interrupting each other. >> among undecided voters cbs snap poll said biden won 50 to 31. 1% called it a draw. vice president in lacrosse, wisconsin today. >> anyone who watched that debate, i don't think there is any doubt that congressman ryan and i, governor romney and the president we have a fundamentally different vision for america. >> when biden ridiculed romney for suggesting 47% of the people who don't pay income taxes have a government comeback, ryan had a ready-made zinger. >> with respect that quote, vice president knows sometimes words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> bideryan was earnest. if not brand. the weakest moment was when he said the stimulus was wasteful spending. >> he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me stimulus money for companies here in state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus? >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated for constituents applying for grants. it's what we do. we did it for all constituents. >> i love that. i love that. >> romney continues to surge in ba
but there was one poll done by cbs of independents. and uncommitted voters. that was their entire sample. after the debate. and biden won 50-31. >> woodruff: just independents. >> just uncommitted, people who were supporting a candidate but said they could switch, could leave that candidate. and so biden did-- i didn't find, i mean joe biden's default facial expression is a smile. i mean if he's irritated he smiles. he's got great teeth, i don't blame him for smiling. but if he's happy he smiles. if he-- if he is a little nervous he smiles. i didn't find it to be-- i mean he did interruption but i didn't find it to be so over the top. >> woodruff: you didn't think it took away from the substance. >> i think that you could certainly on a split screen if you would prefer it that he hadn't done it the way he did it. and there were occasionally some sounds of displeasure. but i thought at no point did paul ryan express, or manifest other than the one time he raised the question, and i thought it was perfectly appropriate on his part, where he said i think it would be better off, people would get mo
, working bipartisanly? 7% rating? >> mitt romney -- >> a recent cbs/"new york times" poll puts disapproval of congress an eye-popping 75%. let's go ahead and bring in today's brain trust. syndicated columnist bob franken, and the "washington post's" jennifer rubin, also a contributor to cnbc's "kudlow report." good saturday afternoon to all of you. kevin, i want to start with you. you're here in the studio with me. you wrote a piece. it's titled why vote. >> yeah. >> my ap government politics teach worry have a fit with this one. but in the article you say in part, quote, for more than a generation, this has been the central truth of american politics. how you cast your vote has almost no relation to what any candidate actually intends to do. do you truly believe that no americans can no longer count on the men and women they vote for to live up to their campaign promise? >> i do. there is a tremendous disconnect from the people at the head of the parties and the people we put into office, and a lot of their base. more so in the democratic party. but also even if you're a republican and yo
